Kolkata, November 25th 2015.350 odd students from a dozen colleges of Kolkata broke into a spontaneous applause when Mehul Shah, the student representative of the Bhawanipur Education Society College (BESC) handed over the much coveted and keenly contested “Overall Champion’s Trophy” of Communiqué 2015 to his counterpart from St Xavier’s College (SXC) the runners-up. “As the host, I thought it is the right, honourable thing to do”said Mehul. “It is gestures like these that reinforce one’s faith in our future generations” added Prof. Dilip Shah, the Dean of Students affairs of BESC and the moving spirit behind the Communiqué.

Students thrashed it out across 13 events like The Controvert (Debate) , The quill (Creative Writing), Wordsworth(The Word Inspector)etc., and were judged for their spontaneity, thought, leadership qualities, interpersonal and presentation skills in front of an audience comprising of appreciative students who were equally quick to put their hands together in an applause as they were in lashing those who failed to live up to their exacting expectations. A galaxy of stars – winners in their own right – were present to judge individual events, encouraging, even accommodating in parental indulgence, yet firm in the conduct of the serious business of fest-ing.
Jimmy Tangree, the voice of Kolkata and the personification of her life’s rhythm was there as a judge; as were Pranab Mukherjee from UNESCO, Theatre & Media personality per excellence; Mitali Sengupta, noted educationist and communication expert Chawm Ganguly.

Pranab Mukherjee himself an avid quizzard and debater in his college days, agreed “the delivery, the content, the structure of the arguments, the puns , intended to pin the opponent or otherwise , were all not only in excellent taste but also executed perfectly and reminds one of the days of yore. It was a pleasure being here today.”
